BOSTON (CBS) – Barry Latzer, professor emeritus at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, joins NightSide to talk about violent crime rates in our country and how they’ve fluctuated over the last few decades. Is there a cyclical element to rising and falling crime rates? Or are there specific policies that result in more or less violent crime? Do you think we have a problem with violent crime in this country?
